Get the Look: A Primitive Cottage Bedroom

Thursday, October 25th, 2018

While we can’t offer you a beautiful door leading out to a pretty balcony, we can help you achieve the cozy, airy and primitive [indoor] cottage look depicted below. This bedroom may be small, but it’s filled with such personal touches we can’t help but be charmed by it.

Bedding

It would be wrong to start with anything but the quilt. A quilt adds interest and whimsy to a bedroom, not to mention comfort, and whether your preference is a solid color or pattern, we have a variety of quilts that would work in a primitive cottage bedroom (Apothecary, Rosemary, and Blue Dusk shown here). When choosing coordinating accent pillows or shams, look for similar colors and alternative textures for maximum style. And we all know that a throw at the edge of a bed adds a relaxed look to a room while offering extra warmth for cooler nights.

Desk

It doesn’t matter if the desk holds a laptop or your stationary for corresponding with friends; there’s no reason for it not to be beautiful. The Captain’s Desk (also available in black and chestnut) is part of our web exclusive selection of furniture, and it’s made here in the USA. In a cottage bedroom, and especially a small cottage bedroom, a quaint desk with storage options like this also makes for a great bedside table.

Unconventional Wall Art

We love the look of an unconventionally sized print in a bedroom like the one pictured above. Our Sunny Daze Canvas Print is bright and, well, sunny, and can be hung horizontally or vertically. For seasonal charm, the wide Red Barn in the Woods Canvas Print is a perfect option.

Black Hyacinth Cocktail Storage Trunk | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopAt the Foot of the Bed

A trunk or chest at the foot of the bed offers more storage for blankets and keepsakes, as well as an extra seat. The Black Hyacinth Storage Trunk offers modern storage with the nostalgic look of a primitive, handwoven trunk.

Overall, a primitive cottage bedroom should emanate vibrancy and functionality, two things that give it timeless life. Find out more ways you can incorporate a primitive look in your home here, and tell us how you would give this bedroom

Blue Toile Quilt Collection

Handcrafted and machine washable, this quilt features vermicelli stitching on one side, while reversing to a ticking blue and white pattern. An added touch of romance is seen in the design due to the presence of butterflies meandering through the flowers. Matching shams with a scalloped edge are also available.

Beautiful ferns, flowers and vines fill the quilted landscape of vibrant red cotton in our Holly Garden Quilt Collection. Machine washable quilts include an extra layer of warmth with a soft, striped cotton backing. Edged in a delicate scalloped design, these popular quilts have become a five star, customer-rated item at Sturbridge. Quilts like this bring a touch of refinement to the room; working particularly well in cottage or country themed bedrooms. Made of 100% cotton, a matching throw, sham, and valance are also available.

Vintage Star Quilt Collection

A bold, primitive statement is made in our Vintage Star Quilt Collection. A simple two toned check covers the majority of the material, but the beauty lies in the additional blocked patterns. One pattern consists of a square bordered by two squares of checks, in varying direction to create depth. The second blocked pattern is a large star atop a khaki colored background. This collection also includes a throw, toss pillow, sham, and bed skirt. In your choice of a black (shown) or wine fabric, this quality quilted bedding adds smart style throughout the entire year. Made of 100% cotton.

As part of our Winter Quilt Sale, customers can now save up to $30.
